“I can’t find anything to do in London,” said no one ever. One of the most entertaining kids’ activities is visiting the famous Madame Tussauds wax museum - take a selfie with The Queen or Daniel Craig! For a unique experience, book a hot air balloon ride over the city. Sip champagne in the sky while marvelling at the Thames snaking its way through London town.
Cultural Things to Do in London
Take in a West End show with London theatre and show deals, shop till you drop at Harrods, or visit one of the fantastic museums. A great way to see a lot of London’s attractions is to purchase a ticket for one of the many ‘hop on hop off’ busses. They generally cost around £25-£30 and last for 24 hours. This is a fantastic way to see the city at your own pace - make sure to hop out at the important sites likeBuckingham Palace, The Tower of London, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey to name a few.
The London Eye
In the city affectionately known as The Big Smoke, one of the must see attractions is The London Eye - Europe’s largest ferris wheel. Built in 1999, it is also known as The Millennium Wheel and enjoys 3.5 million visitors per year. Experience spectacular views of the capital’s skyline while perched 443 feet in the air!
A weekend tradition for many Londoners is to spend time at one of the hundreds of boutique markets in the city. From food to fashion, antiques to art, you will find everything you are looking for.
